NHSC New Site Application Deadline Extended to June 13
The 2019 National Health Service Corps (NHSC) New Site Application deadline has been extended to Thursday, June 13 at 11:59 p.m. ET. Read the Site Reference Guide to learn more about the program requirements.
NHSC-approved sites are health care facilities that provide comprehensive, primary health care services to populations residing in health professional shortage areas, and that meet the NHSC site eligibility requirements. Critical Access Hospitals and some Indian Health Service Hospitals may also be eligible.
The NHSC has expanded its site eligibility to help combat the nation’s opioid crisis. Now sites providing general substance use disorder treatment, medication assisted treatment, and/or a certified opioid treatment program are also eligible to apply.
NHSC-approved sites receive several benefits, including:
- Recruiting qualified providers using NHSC Loan Repayment Programs as an incentive;
- Attracting NHSC Scholars who have completed their training and are ready to fulfill their service obligation at your site;
- Posting vacancies to the Health Workforce Connector;
- Participating in HRSA Virtual Job Fairs to connect with primary care trainees and practicing clinicians; and
Having direct access to state Primary Care Offices that help to increase access to primary health care services in your community.
